Breaking Bad
AMC has greenlit a Breaking Bad spinoff series focusing on the show's lawyer, Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), just months after series creator Vince Gilligan said he'd love for the character to land his own show.

"As conceived, the new series is based on the show's popular Saul Goodman character with the working title 'Better Call Saul'..." read a joint statement from Sony and AMG. "Plans call for Saul to be a one-hour prequ...

Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman in Breaking Bad
Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan wants to keep working on the show, even if it ends after the upcoming season.

The hit drama, starring Bryan Cranston as a high school chemistry teacher who turns to making meth, will end after its fifth season this fall.

Gillian isn't done with the property, however, and is working non-stop on a spin-off featuring Bob Odenkirk's character from the series, Saul Goodman.

Gillian doesn't even have a TV deal, but that isn't stopping him from working 24/7 on developing the show. He tells Yahoo!, "Nothing's written in stone, but we are working away on it. My...

'Breaking Bad' Update: A Saul Goodman Spin-Off Is A Possibility

April 10th, 2013 1:39pm EDT
Saul Goodman
Anyone even remotely exposed to Breaking Bad has to remember the scum-of-the-Earth attorney Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), Walter's (literal) partner in crime. Saul is, as Jesse points out, the attorney of choice for criminals who are actually guilty, as he will use all available resources to bail his clients out - provided they can pay a substantial fee for all the skullduggery.

Saul has a talent for schystering, goading characters into a 'safe' situation. He's got a silvery forked tongue and could probably sell glasses to a blind man. But don't get him near a courthouse. God forbid he actu...

Scott Adsit
In the pilot episode of the Emmy Award winning 30 Rock, Scott Adsit's character, Pete Hornberger, is fired. In an example of art imitating life, Scott himself was, at least at first, also being cut from the show. While Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) was trying to save Pete's job from Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) on camera, Tina Fey was trying to save Scott's job in the cast from Executive Producer Lorne Michaels, off camera. Scott was nice enough to discusses with us that very incident along with his roots at Second City, his time on Mr. Show, his favorite moments on 30 Rock and answers some reader qu...

Most Underrated & Overrated HBO Shows

May 23rd, 2008 10:17am EDT
Big Love
For the last two decades, HBO has been considered the gold standard for television quality. The network routinely receives more Emmy nominations than any of its competitors, despite fielding a drastically smaller roster of programming.

HBO practically reinvented what could be done on the small screen. Each episode now had the same production values as a feature film, and the way the pay network could deal with risqué content led to a wide array of groundbreaking programming.

A quick glance at the roster of original shows produced by HBO over its first 25 years is almost like look...

Starpulse Q&A With Jay Johnston: How the Mustachioed Half Lives

November 14th, 2007 4:19pm EST
Jay Johnston
Jay Johnston was used to strangers approaching him in public. After all, he was a prominent writer and actor on the cult HBO sketch series Mr. Show with Bob and David. Plus, he's had his fair share of encounters with the homeless and jerks who want to pick a fight with him simply because he's six foot five. But the oddest reactions Jay's received were the result of growing out a mustache during the first season of The Sarah Silverman Program for his role of Officer Jay McPherson. Suddenly, Jay found himself the victim of behavior he deemed to odd and annoying to endure and vowed to wear pro...
